Lotus Europa Twin-Cam JPS Special 5 Speed, 1974. Peter Day restoration. One of the finest Europas we have ever seen or driven. (1974)




Lotus Europa Twin-Cam JPS Special 5 Speed, 1974.  Peter Day restoration.  One of the finest Europas we have ever seen or driven.   Restored by one of the top handful of classic Lotus restorers in the World.  Peter Day’s work is renowned amongst Lotus aficionados as being of the highest quality with incredible attention to detail.  I can honestly say this is one of the top two Europas I have ever driven; the closest was a Europa Special about 35 years ago that only had 7,000 miles on the clock from new.  The gear-selection, engine smoothness, the aroma of the interior; everything about this one is so right.  Has only covered 4,200 miles since the ground up rebuild on a Lotus galvanised chassis which was painted in factory black finish.  Comes with the letter from the Lotus archivist with the Certificate of Provenance.   Manufactured in 1973 and sold by Bell & Colvill Ltd in Surrey and first registered in 1974.  The car has to be seen to be believed and is in jaw-dropping condition. Just two owners over the last 21 years.  This Europa is an absolute joy to own and will be much appreciated for decades to come.  Lovely history file with old MOT certificates going back to 1978.  Fully MOT’d and serviced and road tax fee exempt being of Historic Vehicle status.
